    2015 Silverado 1500,where to route harness plugs? There are no openings to fit the snowdogg harness through.Do I have to cut grille? Really don't want to hack it up. Thinking about just bringing the harness under the bumper and storing it behind the bumper.Won't even fit through the towhook openings.Thanks,trying to get this done today

    Not sure if it will work, but my Bosses Silverado is a 2013 (so its a different body style) but the plugs come out in a slot right near the license plate. Wish I could get you photos but I'm off at school.

    My western plugs fit through the tow-hook openings.

    Thanks,I got the plow plug out the drivers side tow hook opening,had to shave a little plastic to push it through.The passenger side has less room for some reason. Another strange thing is you cant remove the tow hooks without taking brackets for bumper off,the bolts hit when you try to remove.I'll figure something out,lots going on, my gmc 4500 is in shop with tranny problems(400 $ tow,5k$ ?) broke a rubber track on my excavator (1200$)and that's just the tip of iceberg!

    Cut a straight line from the tow hook opening to the license plate bracket, the plastic should flex so you can get the plug out, and then when the plugs are hidden behind (if there is a place to have them not fall) it should look pretty close to stock, thats essentially what my bosses truck has.

    (The cut is literally just one slice through that allows the part to separate and plugs through only when you push it through, hope that makes sense)

    Thanks,ill have to do that,if I slice it instead of cutting with a hacksaw blade it shouldn't be to noticeable.
